You may definitely want to stay fit, mentally and physically. By surrounding yourself with a little of green things you can easily do so. Nature not only makes surroundings beautiful but also makes you feel happier and relaxed. Many a times when one feels stressed, the plants and trees help you at soothing your nerves.
But growing plants and trees could be a problem for a few of you, who do not have green thumb! Or, even if you love gardening, you may find choosing right plant pots and soil for your plants a little difficult. Especially with a diversified range of planters available in the market, it becomes more challenging to select the right containers for your lush. You may have got confused between buying clay, terracotta, or plastic plant pots! And even if you have decided to buy only the planters made of plastic, you may be puzzled between which one to buy – large or small, round or square and so on.
To ease off your worry, here I bring o you a certain points that may assist you in making the correct choice:
Depth – Usually the deeper the pots are, the more healthy the growth is. The wider and shallow containers tend to dry out quickly. Thus, it is good to invest in plant pots that are larger and deeper in size. They may provide an ample space to plants and maintain a healthy growth.
Proper drainage – Although clay planters offer more drainage than the plastic, for they are porous. But it is essential to buy plastic plant pots that offer lesser drainage for the plants that require more moisture. This is because the plastic containers are not porous. Unlike clay or ceramic or wood containers they keep water intact for a longer period of time allowing you to save on time that you may spend on watering the lush.
Placement – As a matter of fact, you could even choose plastic plant pots in case you want to put your lush outdoors. For the reason that they do not lose their sheen even under direct sun, the pots keep looking beautiful for many years to come. However, in such case where you want to maintain outdoor gardens, you should invest in larger plant pots (as stated above).
Colour/ Shape – Although you may have to choose the plant pots in the colour that may be in sync with the overall theme of the garden, it is better to opt for brighter, pastel colour planters. The vivid colour containers may add to the beauty of gardens where as the different shapes will make the gardens look interesting.About Author
